Little discovery made on Bandcamp today and I thought that some people would like this.

Lucas has already worked on LADAMA and Callers and judging by her voice and the sweet nature of the compositions, I am willing to discover both bands.

I have mixed feelings about the song "Paying Guests" though. I thought that the voice didn't match the song but that doesn't stop you from listening. The two other songs are really cool to hear.

This album is pretty goofy but damn, it is also fun as hell.

This has good energy and even the weakest songs ("Dune Buggy" and the last ones after "Kick Out The Jams") have something good to hear. The music is awesome and the lyrics can be funny at times.

It is a pretty good album to listen at.

Compared to every song present on "SAWAYAMA" or even on "RINA", "Lucid" is disappointing.

It doesn't really have much of a personality when it comes to lyrics or production.
Sawayama's voice is still good but the song is so indistinguishable from any other popular song that plays on the radio. It's not original, it's not thoughtful, it doesn't take any risk and it doesn't have the same emotional strength as her other songs in my opinion.

By far her worst song...

A better experience, in my opinion than "Limoilou".

It is sweet to hear and it is really creative.

Some could say that "Dans le noir" is a step back from "Limoilou" because less arrangements were used but i personnaly think that it works amazingly. It seems that the idea was to produce ... read more

Safia Nolin has a lot of talent in terms of writing and composing songs but also has a great voice.


It is probably one of the best voices in the french language singing field nowadays. She feels sweet and tortured at the same time, expressing raw emotions that are felt in the lyrics and the production. You can feel that this album is like a confession from Safia Nolin.


One of those albums you won't soon forget.

Hi y'all. Just a 1998 little french awkward guy who likes music more than food, movies and sibling (kidding on that last one, love u sis'). Favorite bands : Radiohead & Blur. 90's music lover even if there is cool stuff nowadays.
